Accutane + ??

I am currently on Accutane.

On my 3rd month, (1st month- 40 MG 2nd Month- 40 MG 3rd- 60 MG)

I am not seeing any real results. Most of my acne is on my cheeks. My forehead and neck have cleared up nicely. But my cheeks are not seeing many results.

I bought Spectro Jel pads today and wondering if it would help.

as of today i have not taken any other facial products since i began Accutane. Any recomendations would be appreciated

thanks

Re: Accutane + ??

How severe is your acne?
How large are the pimples?
Do you touch your cheeks a lot? Lean on them with your hand? Sleep on your sides?

A good 'starting' point for me when my acne flares up is Benzoyl Peroxide 5%. You might be thinking thats a light treatment, but you'd be surprised just how effective the stuff is at killing acne bacteria.

Good luck to you!

My pimples are not big.
My Acne is not severe.
If i would put it on a scale of 1-10 i would give it a 6-7 on how bad it is.

I do sleep on my side. Mostly left side.
i only touch my cheeks cuz they feel itchy.
Try to avoid it tho

Try getting your doc to prescribe you a topical like benzoyl peroxide. Also, change your pillow cases at least once a week. All the dead skin, oil, and hair that accumulate on your pillow case are likely to aggravate acne.
